So the question here is: who will deal with removing the board file dependency?
I don't think we and our consultants doing the work for us are competent

So is it OK if we submit a kit of tests which are structured in the same way as
the current reverse tests? Then we can deal with upgrading the tests later, once
the board file requirements has been fixed?
